Robertson State School is a niche primary school located in an attractive setting on the south side of Brisbane. It is a coeducational school of approximately 730 students from Prep to Year 6. The school is enrolment managed and has a waiting list for student entry. The school motto, Achievement Through Effort, and our vision, Creating Brighter Futures Together, have resulted in a caring and supportive community embracing diversity and celebrating multiculturalism. Since the opening of Robertson in 1980, the school has built a strong reputation of excellence in behaviour, uniform presentation and academic achievement. The school pedagogy around gifted education is underpinned by differentiation and developing critical and creative thinking skills. Students are also encouraged to be autonomous learners.
The school embraces a global outlook through a comprehensive Languages and International Studies program with Bilingual Chinese classes beginning in Year 1, sister school exchange visits every two years and international study tours. The school's strategic direction in digital futures is supported through a dedicated Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) iPad initiative in all classrooms from P-6 and a well-resourced Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program. The progressive introduction of the Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Science, the Arts and Technologies, provides consistent and sequential learning and reporting. Robertson has an outstanding classroom music program, two choirs, two bands and three levels of string ensembles.
